Re: Huawei spying

Previously the stated concern was backdoors were being made at the chipset level rather than the software level, which would be much hard to find or prove.

All seems total bollocks though and until we see some solid evidence, will treat the claims as such. All the time we continue to find intentional or not backdoors in US products, such as Cisco hard coded credentials, SSH keys etc or Intels various weird patents for ways that allow executing code beyond ring 0 which seem to only have uses as a backdoor.

Lots of backdoors which could have plausible deniability but are actually there and reported on, compared to not many Huawei bugs like that in comparison.

Give me a Huawei phone without Broadcom radio and with Kaspersky AV on any day over the US alternatives!
